i am looking for a printer manager able to build a book out a text file.

In Windows there were some one 15..20 y. ago, free for private use, able to print 2 ou 4 little pages on a sheet of paper recto / verso so managed that after folding in 2 or 4 part (and cutting in the middle in case of 4 only of course) all the litte pages really build a book.

is that also available in an analog form for Linux?

(eventually using wine Confused !!!)

Dear oui,

This is a java program (jar) and it works (at least it worked last time I tried to use it). I have run it successfully in various Puppies with java installed:

There is also this (not free, will process 10 pages), but I really haven't tested it:

Does anybody else have other links?

With kind regards,
vovchik

I'm aware of boomaga, which is a CUPS print manager back-end written in shell. However, I suspect it won't work with Puppy Linux without modification, because it's developed and tested on multi-user Ubuntu systems.

I have used Bookbinder 3 for some time (a year or so and some 30 to 40 books from 120 to 400 pages). I have had no problems, once I learned how to run it.
It does seem to run better with an older JRE (1.7) than the newer.
